Just got this from a friend <www.ncwheatmontanacoop.com>. Has now 3 pick-up locations in NC. I don't know if they provide this service also in other states. would be worthwile to check with them. Does anybody have experience with their flour? If the flour is good it seems to me worthwile. Good prices.

I've worked with three of their flours, the AP, WW, and Prairie Gold. I'll admit to liking the Prairie Gold the most due to its excellent flavor in a loaf. The WW, Bronze Chief, has what I would call a hearty flavor and can be a little bit thirsty when mixing a batch. The Natural White is a fine AP with a lower protein level than KAF AP.


I've found their flour locally in the KC area at Hy-Vee supermarkets in 5# bags and mill your own Prairie Gold and Bronze Chief for around $1/lb. It's good stuff.

I realize this thread is a bit dated, but allow me to introduce Fish Pond Branch Farms located just outside of Benson, NC. We are a small, family farming operation. We specialize in growing chemical free hard white and red winter wheat. Both of our varieties were developed specifically for growth in North Carolina and make excellent bread and other baked products. We are looking to expand our market and hope that you will consider our wheat. We also sell chemical free white popcorn. Please inquire for pricing.

 We are registered with the Got to be NC(Goodness Grows in North Carolina) program. We think that this wheat is a win-win for North Carolinians who enjoy making and eating their own bread: Wheat developed and grown in North Carolina. It doesn't get fresher than that!
